Technologies play an important role in the intergenerational transmission of Yolnu languages and culture, but can digital development incorporate Yolnu cosmological and epistemological frameworks? Despite the pressures of an increasingly standardised Australian Curriculum, the Yolnu Indigenous Warramiri community at Gawa in remote Northern Territory continues to pursue an 'on country' homeland and intercultural 'bothways' philosophy of education. In this paper, we outline some of the bala-rali (backwards and forwards) discussions and negotiations from 2009-15, as a form of duoethnography that culminated in the design of the Warramiri website to support such a bothways philosophy.
